A collection of munin plugins to monitor your AVM FRITZ!Box router. The scripts have been developed using a FRITZ!Box 7590(Amazon link) running FRITZ!OS 7.00.

If you are using the scripts on a different Fritz!Box model please let me know by

  • opening an issue
  • submitting a pull request

So far the following models (running FRITZ!OS 06.83) have been confirmed working:

If you are still running Fritz!OS 6.30 check out the releases section.


These python scripts are Munin plugins for monitoring the Fritz!Box router by AVM.


fritzbox_traffic shows you the traffic of the WAN interface (requires fritzconnection)

If you do not want to show the interface maximum values, add the following to your plugin-configuration:

env.traffic_remove_max true


fritzbox_connection_uptime shows you the connection uptime in days (requires fritzconnection)


fritzbox_cpu_usage shows you the cpu usage (requires password)


fritzbox_cpu_temperature shows you the cpu temperature (requires password)


fritzbox_memory_usage shows you the memory usage (requires password)


fritzbox_power_consumption shows you the power consumption (requires password)


fritzbox_uptime shows you the uptime in days (requires password) (language dependant, see below).


fritzbox_wifi_devices shows you the number of connected wifi clients (requires password) (language dependant, see below).

Installation & Configuration

  1. Pre-requesites for the fritzbox_traffic and fritzbox_uptime plugins are the fritzconnection and requests package. To install it

     pip install fritzconnection
     pip install requests
  2. Make sure the FritzBox has UPnP status information enabled. (German interface: Heimnetz > Heimnetzübersicht > Netzwerkeinstellungen > Statusinformationen über UPnP übertragen)

  3. Copy all the scripts to /usr/share/munin/plugins

  4. Create entry in /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/munin-node:

     env.fritzbox_ip <ip_address_to_your_fritzbox>
     env.fritzbox_password <fritzbox_password>
     env.traffic_remove_max true # if you do not want the possible max values
     host_name fritzbox
  5. Create symbolic links to /etc/munin/plugins.

  6. Restart the munin-node daemon: /etc/init.d/munin-node restart.

  7. Done. You should now start to see the charts on the Munin pages.


Two scripts depend on the language selected in your fritzbox: the uptime and wifi_devices. Currently, two locales are supported:

  1. German: de (default)
  2. English: en

You can change the used locale by setting an environment variable in your plugin configuration:

env.locale en

Different hosts for the fritzbox and your system

You can split the graphs of your fritzbox from the localhost graphs by following the next steps:

  1. Use the following as your host configuration in /etc/munin/munin.conf

         use_node_name yes
         use_node_name no
  2. Add the following to your munin-node configuration

    env.host_name fritzbox

  3. Restart your munin-node: systemctl restart munin-node

Environment Settings

Do not forget to restart the munin-node daemon as described in step 3 of the installation instructions above.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
